|Tracking the Economy: This Time Is Different|
Presentation: Thursday, MArch 3, 2016
As the domestic economic expansion nears its seventh anniversary, the curious shape of this cycle and its deviation from global trends poses both threats and opportunities.
In this session we’ll consider the current economic environment, the influence of international economies on our own, the impact of changing monetary policy on the business environment, and the role that politics might play in all these things. We will conclude with some observations about the implications for financial markets and interest rates as well.
